"Epona" - Painting by Emily Balivet. The Celtic Goddess, Epona, draped in red stands between two horses in a vast landscape. Her name means "Divine mare" in Gaulish. The mare was an ancient symbol of fertility, this has lead to suggestions that she was an early Mother Goddess figure, whose role was later reduced to protector of horses.
Ancient Syrian Relief with Two Heroes, 10th century BC (Neo-Hittite/Hurritic), made of basalt. This relief decorated the lower course of the exterior wall of the temple palace of King Kapara. Two heroes pin down a bearded foe, while grabbing at his pronged headdress. The context may be related to the Gilgamesh epic, and display Gilgamesh and Enkidu in their fight with Humbaba.
